Game became almost unplayable when they removed all the means of defence at the beginning. I don't dare to play on high pop servers because it is a guaranteed death to even approach the places with most loot, because everyone else always seems to have atleast a makarov. All you are left with is a small chance to get a random weapon drop somewhere, which seem to be damn rare.
Man up Origano.
I went into cherno the other day had no Items (after dieing at the main airbase to a horde of zombies along with my friends) I walked into cherno found an axe in one of the buildings. Skulked around nipping from building to building then as I got into one house heard some footsteps from the other room. Called out friendly? Guy rushes in to shoot me with his makarov. I cut to the chase and axed him a question. Took his gear (had bino makarov + rounds food bandages pain killers and match + compass watched and knife) rolled out of cherno with my mate who just got into town robbed the supermarket and ran to the hills.
Moral of the story I love having no weapons. You find another survivor who has nothing you're all nice. Moment someone has a weapon it gets interesting.
Currently me and my mates (about 8 of us now) are considering getting a server. Purely so we can play on our own server when we want (kicking randoms to make room hey its not polite but its easier to get us onto one server).
Arma looks atrocious, why in the world are people playing this??
Been playing this for awhile with my brother and 3 friends. The best was running up against another group of players and taking all their stuff, we were seriously low on supplies, was honestly one of the best times in any game I have ever played.

I wish a proper developer would make a game like this, it's a fantastic idea.
sadly this mod is ruined by the delayed reaction of zombies dying and their movement.
Still, I tip my hat to the guy who does it, he needs more financial backing! or some publisher has to take this seriously and create this game properly.
BEWARE - The same restrictions apply to Non-Dev run servers!
- IT MAY NEVER BE PASSWORDED
- NO OTHER KEYS OR MODS. NONE. PERIOD.
- NO KICKING TO MAKE ROOM FOR 'FRIENDS' OR CLANMATES
- NO LOCKING THE SERVER
- NO EDITING DAYZ/MISSION FILES
- IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO UPDATE YOUR SERVER TO THE LATEST VERSION OF DAYZ
- Minimum slot count of 40 (30 for countries where bandwidth is expensive i.e. developing countries)
- Their are only two reasons why you, as a server owner, should ban a player on your server. Those two reasons are: Malicious talk, and racism. You may not ban a user for stealing your loot, killing you, spying on you, etc.
- You may only kick for disruptive behavior (such as continued VOIP over side channel). But you may not kick due to race or language or because the person does something you do not like.
- Kicking for extremely excessive ping or desync is permitted, but if abused is grounds for blacklisting
Failure to adhere to these rules will BAN YOUR SERVER'S IP from DayZ.
This is DayZ nighttime right now for me and many others.
Edit: Better image
Which isn't realistic at all. The human eye has some darkness adaptability, running into the forest in the middle of the night in Sweden will allow you to see quite a bit while the game allows you, well, no vision.

Ah fair enough. I guess having reserved slots would also work though? As paying for a server and not being able to get all your friends on would be a bit on the sucky side.
But The Dayz Mod'rs haven't really done anything, you can load up the map and play alone, or play with other people, the exactly same map and do the same things with Arma Multilayer, But this has a weird feeling of doom about it with the zombie's,. but its in alpha- Some small tweaks well happen but the Zombies seeing through building, passing through building, attacking through buildings, walking on water, and you dying just climbing over a fence or fracturing all your bones falling 2 feet and other deaths is an Arma Engine things, So unless the modders can rewrite the engine code it will never change.
But I love the game, Been playing for about 2 weeks, its so simple of an idea I wish I had thought of it. And I would love a solid, polished with tons of crafting and more exploration, like hidden bunkers or Science labs, also maybe a very cryptic story on why this is happening .
A stand-alone title like this, I would pay a sub also...like an MMO..

like people stated its a alpha, still the modmaker rocket i like the fact he got hired to work on armaIII not only for dayz mod ofcourse, but its probaly a big reason. I am just hoping arma III gets shipped with a dayz mod from launch
Joey AdamsDo not worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older it will avoid you.
And he said he'd already tried a port to arma 3 and that it worked great, and tried 100-200 players per server.
So yeah this will definitely be a lot better in 6-12 months when Arma 3 gets here, that is of course unless BI partners up with EA and decides to ruin it.
